Friendly staff! Amazing interior decorations and moving dinosaurs. Also owned by the Landry company, same as Rainforest Cafe, this animated family restaurant is in the middle of downtown Disney Orlando. With a long line at times, we sat at the bar. Drinks were tourist price, but staff was super friendly. I was actually surprised at our appetizer cheese dips, not overwhelmingly huge. Take that as a good or bad thing.
Burger was good, not amazing. Definitely not Medium cooked. Friends mushroom ravioli was awesome. Overall a nice place for tourists and visual sights.Recommended for:

If you like dinosaurs, if your kid likes dinosaurs, or if you EVER liked dinosaurs as a kid, you MUST go here! I was one of those kids who was obsessed with dinosaurs (though when I grew up, back in the 70s and 80s, we didn't have all these audio-animatronic dinosaurs, I had to settle for looking at fossilized bones in natural history museums to get my fix). When I saw the sign for this place I started squealing and waving my arms around -- it was like I was 6 years old again -- and I was super close to throwing a tantrum if my husband wasn't willing to take me to eat here (luckily he was and he did).
I think it is absolutely pointless for me to review the food because look, that isn't why you come here -- it's the atmosphere. You feel like you have stepped back into the age of the dinosaurs! Every 15 minutes the entire restaurant comes to life with roaring, meteor showers and more. You have to see it to believe it! The food is as you'd expect -- crappy and very, very overpriced. Go and eat a $20 salad and stay for the dinos! Parking here is quite literally a NIGHTMARE so plan accordingly. If you can take a bus or taxi to avoid bringing a car, this is the place to do it.Recommended for:

Pretty much the same as the Rainforest Cafe, and you only read need to go to one to get the experience, otherwise it can be quire samey, but nevertheless, it is a fab experience!! The buzz in the environment of all the dinosaurs and noise and staff, with the occasional 'meteor shower' really is great! I really enjoyed it here as everything is so well detailed - there were even fossils in the toilets, which I found to be a real nice touch. The food is pretty good too, especially the desert I shared which actually smoked, which just adds to the magic of Disney. A must for any dinosaur lover or archeologist.

Landry's restaurants' attempt to copy their Rainforest Cafe chain falls flat. While Rainforest Cafe is themed well, this is a jumble of "scenes" and animals that do not go together. The food is overpriced, the souvenirs and crass, and the sensory overload is too much for younger children. I secretly kept wishing the asteroid would crash and make this place extinct.
